Thanks for that. Is it a metal top painted black in your pic?
Is that how they came originally, metal painted black?

Metal cap with short plastic stick.
I actually have seen them both ways - Painted and no paint.
I think typically on the Camaros they were painted.

Actually I believe they were natural on the Camaro. All the ones I have seen on original cars have been natrual.

Or, as a compromise you could paint it a little bit.

I have seen them like that too. just some black overspray. Wink
Pretty sloppy sometimes too.

Caps were a 2 ear metal with a cad plate finish. Plastic was a replacement later.

Pacecarjeff, is it possible that the "kinda black - had a sloppy spray gun waved at it" metal ones you have seen, may have been rebuilt power steering pumps that the rebuilder then threw a flash of black over to make it look nice, without worrying about any overspray that went on the cap?

None of the ones I am talking about are rebuilts.
My experience is from walking through junk yards for 20 years.
I have pulled 100's of these caps in the past.
Quite a few of them were definitely painted at the factory.

According to NCRS - Corvette PS caps were aways painted.

Either way would be OK on a Camaro.

My '67 Corvette and '69 Camaro PS caps are both painted - have never seen an UN-painted 60's PS cap.  Smiley

John, I think the 69 should have had a black plastic cap with no inner line (and no paint).  Are you saying yours has a metal painted cap like the 68s?

I should have been more specific - my '69 cap is black plastic with no inner line as you describe; just meant I've never seen an unpainted metal cap.  Smiley

Pretty darn sure the 69's should have a metal cap. The plastic caps are later 70's.
Painted or unpainted - either would be OK.
I have shoe box full of these.  Some are opainted some are not

I've been watching this thread with great interest...
Jeff, how about posting a picture of an unpainted metal power steering cap.  I'm not questioning that you have one.  But like John, I've just never seen one. 
In the last four years I've looked at literally hundreds of 60s Chevrolets --mostly Camaros-- including judging a few.  If some caps were originally unpainted, we need to know it.
